Providing a broad and balanced overview of the teaching of history and geography, Primary Humanities: Learning through Enquiry is indispensable reading for all primary teacher education students wishing to develop their understanding of teaching humanities subjects. Using an enquiry-based approach that encourages children to learn through questioning and investigating , it combines theoretical coverage with practical examples to provide an informed, engaging guide to humanities teaching in the primary classroom. Key issues covered include planning and assessment in history and geography, using resources in teaching, and exploring creative and cross-curricular approaches in humanities. This is essential reading for all students studying primary history and geography on primary initial teacher education courses including undergraduate (BEd, BA with QTS), postgraduate (PGCE, SCITT, School Direct), and employment-based routes into teaching, and NQTs. Tony Pickford and Wendy Garner are Senior Lecturers at the University of Chester. Elaine Jackson is formerly Chief Adviser (Primary) Trafford BC and Primary Headteacher.
